Tyler Wright 
Director of Amateur Scouting

  
Wright, a former NHL player, joined the Red Wings’ organization in July 2013 as their director of amateur scouting after spending six years in the same position with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

A former first-round draft selection of the Edmonton Oilers, Wright was selected by Columbus in the 2000 expansion draft and played 309 games as a Blue Jacket, registering 57 goals and 51 assists for 108 points with 436 penalty minutes.

He also served as an alternate captain during the 2000-01, 2001-02 and 2003-04 seasons. His best campaign was the Jackets’ inaugural 2000-01 season, when he posted a career-high 16 goals and 16 assists with a team-leading 140 penalty minutes. He was traded to Anaheim for former Red Wings’ star Sergei Fedorov in Nov. 2005.

He appeared in 613 games in 13 NHL seasons, tallying 79-70-149 and 854 penalty minutes with the Blue Jackets, Anaheim Ducks, Pittsburgh Penguins and Edmonton Oilers. Edmonton’s first pick, 12th overall, in the 1991 draft, he also represented Team Canada at the 1992 and 1993 (gold medal) World Junior Championships and 2002 World Championships.

Wright rejoined the Blue Jackets’ organization in July 2007 as development coach and served as one of the club’s directors of amateur scouting where he helped them orchestrate their draft classes in 2012 and 2013.
